What Is Climate Change?

Climate change refers to any significant change in measures of climate (such as temperature, pre­cipitation, or wind) lasting for an extended period (decades or longer). Climate change might result from natural factors and processes or from human activities.

The term “climate change” is often used inter­changeably with the term global warming. Global warming refers to an average increase in the temperature of the atmosphere near the Earth’s surface, which can contribute to changes in global climate patterns. However, rising temperatures are just one aspect of climate change.
